Illustration update

  Greetings, My latest illustrations are more complex than my earlier work. I am using more colours and layers for each work as my knowledge of the Autodesk Sketchbook program increases. Here we see an illustrated work that I completed for Jay @Dangerous Decorations on Instagram. He requested that the illustration not “look like a selfie”, so I used a source image that he provided, where he stood in an authoritative pose. The original photo did not feature blue reflective lenses, but I like to draw sunglasses in this way.… Read more Illustration update

Abstract Acrylic on Wood in gold, blue, and iridescent green

Latest Scratch Work: Herald Angel 2018- Acrylic on wood panel by Stephanie Konu This abstract 10 x 10 inch wood panel is a wild ride of eclectic technique, unusual colour, contrast, and a psychedelic trip into the imagination.   I named it Herald Angel because the golden field that sits in the north-west corner represents an angel’s visit.

The swirling blue… Read more Abstract Acrylic on Wood in gold, blue, and iridescent green

Trim, Bias Tape,and Ric RacĀ 

While visiting my supplier, I saw this vibrant 100 percent cotton material. The patterns were to die for, so I decided to make 2 centimeter wide double folded bias tape; or  trim as it is also called. I made lots of bias tape. How much did I make, you ask? 4000 centimeters or 40 meters.  Each package has 4 meters- a generous amount because double fold bias tape is normally sold in 2.75 meter packages. Speaking of which, those packages usually have boring and plain colours. If your are a… Read more Trim, Bias Tape,and Ric RacĀ
